lsternwick Park is a unique sporting area – we have the golf course, two sport ovals, tennis courts and a bowls club. Having a National Home for Golf and Centre for Excellence here would be very good for Bayside, but we’re not sure yet what it would mean for the golf club. The club has a great history and we’d hope we wouldn’t have to see it go, but there is a likelihood that could happen. The course is run by Leisure Management Services and even before the national golf home proposal, there has been talk of putting in a driving range here – that would completely change the course. They would have to remove trees and develop new buildings. I went along to a meeting for interested groups about the National Home for Golf proposal, but it didn’t really give us much information. It seemed like this was something they need to do soon because of the input from all the golf associations – the Professional Golfers’ Association of Australia, Golf Australia and Golf Victoria. We do know they would need to build meeting rooms and training centres. I would say that’s why this place is attractive, because we are already a sporting park and things could be developed on those areas. It’s obviously a big thing for golf and people are trying to build the sport because it is going to be in the next Olympics. Other sports, swimming for example, have centres of excellence for their athletes – this is no different. From the club’s perspective, we approve of what’s happening, but we want to know – are we going to

lose the golf course? It might mean we’re a closed shop, but until they start looking into it, we’re just not going to know. We hope we wouldn’t have to disband the club – we’ve been here for 85 years and

prior to that it was a private golf club. The original private club moved and became Kingston Heath. But if it did happen here, as far as the appearance of the area is concerned – it would be improved

beyond belief from its current state. It would have to be perfection personified. Any facility built to foster athletes to an elite level would have to be at a very high standard.

ON COURSE: Terry Cheverton with his artwork of Malt Cafe at Beaumaris Concourse

Art imitates life on Beaumaris Concourse BEAUMARIS Concourse is the place to be this Saturday for artlovers, kids, shoppers and anyone who loves a festive atmosphere. About 40 members of the Beaumaris Art Group will set up

easels to paint or draw a shopfront or business, such as the Malt Cafe as captured here by art tutor Terry Cheverton. As Scene at the Concourse will run from 10.30am to 1.30pm, with face painting, colouring competi-

tions, people’s choice awards and judging by Bayside councillors. Works will be displayed at the art group’s home behind the Beaumaris Library from March 5-13. Prizes will be presented on March 8 at 7pm. – TERESA MURPHY

VISITORS to Bayside beaches may have to pay to park on Beach Road from next summer to reduce the rates cost burden on locals. Councillors last week backed councillor Alex del Porto’s motion to expand paid off-street parking areas to both sides of Beach Road near popular beaches. The aim, Cr del Porto said, was to generate income and thus reduce the council’s reliance on rates. ‘‘Instead of raising rates each year, the intention is to generate more income this way, as neighbouring Port Phillip does,’’ he said. ‘‘Council spends around $2 million a year on maintaining our foreshore, costs that are over and above those needed to service just Bayside residents. ‘‘Non Baysiders are of course welcome to use our fabulous beaches but they must help us pay to

maintain them,’’ Cr del Porto said. Cr Michael Heffernan said ‘‘people from outside’’ Bayside had been ‘‘freeloading for too long’’. ‘‘I think the community will be very happy with this one, especially as many are already blighted by the parking problems that visitors to our beaches create.’’ Cr James Long said he was ‘‘open minded’’ about the proposal but didn’t want Bayside to be ‘‘money grabbing’’ like Port Phillip. ‘‘We talk about supporting tourism and we want repeat visitors. And they’ll just park somewhere else and shift the problem elsewhere.’’ Cr del Porto said locals would continue to be exempt from beach parking fees if the new system was implemented, ideally by next summer. Council officers will identify suitable locations, costs and estimated revenue, consult with the community and stakeholders and prepare a report for councillors.

VOX POP DO YOU SUPPORT COUNCILLOR ALEX DEL PORTO’S PROPOSAL TO INTRODUCE PAID PARKING ON BEACH ROAD? JOHN NEWMAN, St Kilda No. I’ve parked down here plenty of times and have always found a parking spot. I don’t think the congestion warrants that. I think it’s just revenue-gathering. I haven’t found the beaches here unclean. I don’t see a need for it.

WILL STONE, Brighton East It’s a good idea that non-locals should pay for beach parking but locals should have more flexibility.

PHIL MCALEER, Sandringham Yes. As residents and ratepayers, we’re absorbing the costs [of maintaining the beaches]. That’s being a bit selfish, but why not? People have to pay for parking off the street, so I’m not sure why it should be different for parking on the street. We have to pay when we go to other places.

The grants will go to the best entry in each of three categories: ‘‘New Shoot’’ to start a new garden; ‘‘Still Growing’’ to improve an existing garden; or ‘‘Full Bloom’’ for an innovative gardening idea. Cheltenham East Primary School, awarded a grant last year, used its winnings to create an edible garden. Details: visit sew.com.au.

Sale gets boxed in A rare gem of a Brighton beach box is still on the market after its auction was cancelled and a prior offer didn’t stack up. The February 17 auction of No. 72 box at Dendy Street Beach, advertised for $150,000-plus, was cancelled after agent Nick Johnstone received an offer of $176,000. But the vendor declined, wanting at least $190,000. ‘‘I sold one next door for $205,000, so it’s worth at least $190,000,’’ Johnstone said. The highest price for a Brighton beach box was $260,000 for a new one built by Bayside council in 2011. Brighton Beach has 85 beach boxes. The highest price paid for a beach box in Victoria was $585,000 at Portsea two years ago. ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ●

Golf hub tipped for Elsternwick TEAGAN GLENANE

■ SCHOOL MEETING Sandringham College Council will hold a community information session regarding the proposal for a new Beaumaris secondary school. The meeting is at 7pm on Wednesday, February 27, at Sandringham College’s Reserve Road campus – the proposed site for the new school. For details, email Howard Kelly at hrkelly2@bigpond.com.

ELSTERNWICK Park Golf Course could become home to a national golf training facility. The Glenhuntly Road course has been identified as a possible site for a $26 million National Home for Golf and Centre for Excellence by Golf Australia, Golf Victoria and the Professional Golfers Association of Australia. The centre would include training, research and education facilities and administration offices for the golf industry.

PRO’S VIEW: Nadene Gole says golf needs to be ‘‘a bit more groovy’’ Former professional golfer Nadene Gole, who coaches private students at Elsternwick Park, welcomed the proposal .

She said the investment in elite training could give golf more exposure. “Golf needs to be a bit more groovy,” she said. But Elsternwick Park Golf Club secretary Bill Lock said if the course was selected, it could mean the end of his club. “It would be very good for Bayside, but we’re not sure whether or not it would be good for the club,’’ Mr Lock said. Bayside council has endorsed a site assessment for the centre at Elsternwick Park. Councillors Felicity Frederico and Michael Heffernan said the centre

would benefit the municipality. But North Ward councillor Alex del Porto voted against the proposal. “It’s just for elite golfers and would be unaffordable for a lot of people,” he said. Golf will be an Olympic sport at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games for the first time in 110 years. Golf Australia chief executive Stephen Pitt said golf’s inclusion in the Olympic Games increased the need for a state-of-the-art centralised facility for Australian golfers. Bayside council expects to receive a report on the outcome of the site assessment by May.

Fresh vision for Hampton Street BY BRIDGET FITZGERALD bfitzgerald@mmpgroup.com.au

BAYSIDE council will lobby VicRoads for new 40 km/h speed limits on Hampton Street and will spend $800,000 upgrading footpaths along the shopping strip. But a lot more work is needed to bring the street into line with neighbouring shopping precincts, according to a revitalised local traders association. Hampton Retailers and Professional Business Association spokesman Rob Grinter, who owns sports electronics store Highly Tuned Athletes, said there had been no significant investment in HampCHRIS HOPKINS

ton Street for years. He said a renewed, focused traders group would support improvements to bring the strip up to to the standards of Church and Bay streets in Brighton. “We believe we can start working on making things more vibrant,” he said. “Starting with our trader community.” The council voted on February 19 to write to VicRoads to request road resurfacing and a speed-limit reduction from 60 km/h to 40 km/h. It also voted to implement a footpath reconstruction project, with upgrades between Crisp and Willis streets, to start in March. Footpaths will be replaced with dark grey concrete, and street furniture, garden beds and signage promoting the shopping strip will be installed. Bayside council infrastructure services director Steven White said the works would cause some inconvenience to shoppers and traders, but the council would attempt to minimise disruption. The Bayside community was invited to vote on one of three options for the Hampton Street Masterplan – a full upgrade including trees and a plaza, a street upgrade without a plaza, or a basic footpath reconstruction. Council received 676 responses to an online survey, with most respondents favouring the basic footpath upgrades over the “full masterplan”. Mayor Stephen Hartney said the responses favoured the option that minimised a loss of car park spaces.

Tree dobbers applauded BAYSIDE councillors want residents to ‘‘dob in’’ neighbours who trim or fell trees to gain better views. Cr Heather Stewart said it was ‘‘fabulous’’ that a reward was finally being given to residents who witnessed a Brighton tree vandal on Boxing Day, 2010. Councillors last week supported a request from three of five witnesses, though they will share $6640, not the maximum $20,000. ‘‘We’ve got to encourage people to dob in their neighbours who destroy our trees,’’ Cr Stewart said. John Langton-Bunker was fined $8000 plus $12,000 costs in Moorabbin Magistrates Court last March for pruning a coastal banksia in Martin Street. TERESA MURPHY

Arborists’ call

KEEN ON SCREEN Bayside’s new film festival director has quite a pedigree. Richard Moore, a Bayside resident, ran the Melbourne International Film Festival in 2006 and the Brisbane festival in 2010. Most recently he was head of screen culture for Screen Queensland. The 10th Bayside Film Festival will be held in August.

HOW many reports does it take to remove a single tree? Six and counting as far as an 18-metre silver elm in Beaumaris is concerned. The owner of 175-177 Tramway Parade has battled Bayside council for 16 months to remove the tree, saying its roots are damaging a pool and that falling branches are dangerous. A letter from a retired engineer supported the owner. But five reports by council engineers and arborists disagree. Last week, councillors backed their officers – the tree stays.

BRIGHTON Police were called to a dispute between a taxi driver and two passengers early on February 17. Four people got into a taxi in St Kilda and two got out in Brighton about 1.20am. The two remaining female passengers asked the driver to take them to another address, but he said he would not leave until they paid another late night fare. When the passengers refused, they claim he became aggressive and grabbed at their bags so they would not try to leave without paying.

A 17-year-old secondary school student was assaulted on the 828 Berwick-Hampton bus on February 19. A man got on the bus at Cheltenham station about 3pm and approached the student and his friends. He demanded money and grabbed at the boy’s pockets until another passenger broke up the tussle and the offender sat on the other side of the bus. After a few minutes the offender lunged at the boy with a pen and tried to stab him before the bus driver intervened, threw the man off the bus and called police. Police identified the man through a video filmed during the incident, but when they went to arrest him he was not at his listed address. Police said they were working on tracking him down.

Speak up for your suburb BY TERESA MURPHY tmurphy@mmpgroup.com.au

WANT to have your say on childcare in Bayside, or perhaps height limits in your suburb? What about cycling safety or development of Ricketts Point foreshore? These are among the range of issues that Bayside council is seeking community feedback on, following 2013’s first ordinary council meeting last week. Councillors endorsed changing an amendment to the planning scheme, which seeks to guide residential development for the next 20 years. The amendment, to be approved by the planning minister, aims to protect neighbourhood character and streetscapes, mayor Stephen Hartney said. If approved, the amendment will go on public exhibition for a month.

On exhibition now is the draft 2013 Ricketts Point management plan for the public land above the watermark within the coastal reserve and the public land on the landward side of Beach Road. Copies of the plan are available at Bayside libraries, the council corporate centre at 76 Royal Avenue, Sandringham or online at bayside.vic.gov.au for the community to have its say over the next two months. The council is also inviting community input on how it can make cycling on roads and bike paths safe for everyone and encourage more people to ride. A bicycle network workshop will be held at the corporate centre on Wednesday, March 13, 6.30pm8.30pm. Registration is essential: visit bayside.vic.gov.au/haveyoursay or call 9599 4444.

■ COUNCIL EXPLAINS Bayside council has revealed details of two functions – a staff Christmas party at Royal Melbourne Golf Club on December 20 and a councillor and staff workshop weekend in Healesville on February 1-3. Chief executive Adrian Robb said about 42 staff and councillors and their partners attended the Christmas party, which cost $3947 while the weekend away cost $17,570 ■ EXTENDED LEASE Royal Melbourne Golf Club can lease Sandringham Public Golf Course for another year, barring any objections. Bayside council is considering long-term options for the course, which Royal Melbourne has leased since 2010.

Buildings fail to make the grade BY DAN MOSS State Parliament Editor

THE BURDEN of maintaining school buildings, some reported to be “at the point of imminent failure”, will fall on parent groups, the opposition says. The Victorian Auditor General reported that 2042 school buildings at 505 schools across the state are about to fail, or have failed, as regards their useability. In response to the report, the Education Minister Martin Dixon announced during question time $51.5 million would be spent on

school maintenance. The money would be prioritised according to the results of an Education Department audit of schools, said Mr Dixon’s spokesman Ashley Gardiner. Schools won’t find out their allocation from the fund until the audit is finished, in time for term two. The auditor general’s report said $420 million was needed to bring the buildings up to an acceptable standard, based on the Education Department’s estimate. Schools had suffered “a long legacy” of underfunding, and in 2012 only 32 per cent of the recommended investment, or $87.1 million,

was spent on school maintenance. A quarter of schools are so old they are “not suitable to deliver a modern curriculum”, the report states. The findings showed 67 per cent of Victoria’s school buildings were in good shape and needed only routine maintenance. The report suggested better oversight of maintenance spending was needed, as school principals had “discretion” over how to spend the money. “Compounding the issue of under-investment in maintenance is a lack of effective accountability of schools for maintenance funding,” the report states.

Opposition Leader Daniel Andrews said parents and friends groups would have to fill in the gaps. “I think that is unfair, that is wrong, but that’s the Victoria that we’re in at the moment,” he said. “Parents are going to be asked to do more, teachers and staff are going to be asked to do more and kids just won’t be getting the chances, the opportunities they are entitled to,” he said. He called on Premier Ted Baillieu to reinstate Labor’s Victorian Schools Plan, which the report stated delivered unprecedented investment, but hadn’t been evaluated.

ROCKERS The Transplants will have families bopping along to their punk/blues tunes in a Lygon Street concert this Sunday afternoon. The band will perform at a free event at Argyle Square as part of DonateLife Week 2013. The 11am-3pm event is part of a national initiative promoting awareness of life-changing organ and tissue donation. The Transplants have a special connection with the event as each member is a liver recipient. Transplants singer Jo Fraser said as well as having a laugh with her “maniacally energetic” band mates, the event was a fantastic opportunity to raise the profile of organ donation. “The day’s about getting people that say they’ll register as donors off their butts to sign up,” Ms Fraser said, “and to get people that have signed up to let their loved ones know their wishes.” Ms Fraser, who has battled with an auto-immune disease for about 10 years, has received two liver donations. She needs a third. Last year more than 1000 Australians received transplants thanks to the generosity of 354 donors. Rappers Little G and Flybz, as well as African drummers, Bollywood dancers and many more, will join The Transplants for the event. 8 BAYSIDE REVIEW LOCAL

THE widow of AFL great Jim Stynes will lead this year’s March Against Melanoma. Sam Stynes will be front and centre on Sunday, March 3, as the fundraiser enters its eighth year. She will lead a four-kilometre walk from Catani Gardens in St Kilda which will be followed by a melaNOmore concert. Jim died on March 20 last year from a brain metastasis that arose from an aggressive melanoma. ‘‘Prevention can easily stop the trauma, like what happened with my hubby,’’ Mrs Stynes said. ‘‘The focus for me is prevention through education. When you know what you are dealing with, it takes away the fear.’’ Australian Bureau of Statistics figures show that about 1800 people die from skin cancer each year, with an Australian Institute of Health and Welfare research revealing melanoma as the nation’s fourth most common cancer. ‘‘It’s easy to have the best intentions of applying sunscreen, but you get involved in the fun of the day in the sun – at the beach, at the park – it’s easy to think ‘we’ll be right’.” The March Against Melanoma was launched by Louise White in 2006 after the melanoma death of her 27-year-old daughter Emily. Skin and Cancer Foundation president Associate Professor Chris Baker said that despite the efforts of charities and government public awareness campaigns, the incidence of melanoma continued to rise. “The vast majority of skin cancer can be prevented with reduced UV exposure by taking precautions including wearing a hat, protective clothing and sunscreen and seeking shade wherever possible.’’ To register, visit marchagainstmelanoma.com.au.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR ■ A FRIEND IN NEED Oh! How I envy Sharni and Sam (‘‘Over the fence’’, RL, February 13). I live in a street with 10 houses, including mine. I’ve been here 18 years and would recognise four people. In the past three years, I’ve had the ambulance at my place four times and have been taken to hospital each time where I stayed from three days to two weeks. In all honesty, not one neighbour has ever called at my home to ask if I’m OK! I’m close to 80 years old and look after myself very well. Last year as I was turning into my street, I saw a lady laying on the grass verge. I stopped my car to help and realised it was an elderly lady from my street. She had slipped and couldn’t get up. You wouldn’t believe how many cars just drove on. I had to stop a car and ask the driver if he would put the lady in his car and deliver her home. He did and I followed. He left and she gave me her key and we went inside. She assured me she felt fine but I told her at our age, we shouldn’t take

chances. I called the ambulance, followed the instructions and then phoned her daughter. I waited until the ambulance arrived, told them the full story then left. I too felt a bit shaken. Believe it or not, I still haven’t received a thank you. Some of the bayside homes may be beautiful, but some of the people need to take a good look at themselves. Friendly / via email

■ SHADE TO GREY We all owe a great deal to those who lobby on behalf of cyclists, motorcyclists and pedestrians put at risk by window tinting (‘‘Car tinting levels drive safety fears’’, RL, February 20). Thank you to all these people and to cycling safety campaigner Boyd Fraser, who works tirelessly and without pay to help protect cyclists. He has already played a major role in bringing this issue to the attention of law makers. We can only hope that very soon governments see the sense of

changing the law to protect all members of society. Stella Barber / via website

■ ALL FIRED UP Your article ‘‘Fire risk under control’’ (RL, January 30) states that volunteers of George Street Reserve ‘‘always kept an eagle eye on the heathland’’. How many hours per day do they keep watch? A co-ordinator of the friends of this reserve is quoted as saying ‘‘the reserve is inspected every year by authorities and always given the all clear’’ – what rubbish. At its meeting on July 17, the Bayside council agreed to controlled burn-offs of heathlands. Bay Road Heathlands abutts Karinya Grove aged care, and there’s a block of units next door. The George Street Heathlands is surrounded by housing, a golf course, playing fields, the George retirement units and schools. And only one councillor (Felicity Frederico) voted against the burn-offs. Sue Hardiman / Highett

PROFILE DR CAROLYN ALLAN

LIVES: Brighton WHAT I LOVE ABOUT BAYSIDE: The cafes, the beach, the parks and the friendships we have. The community feel. WHAT NEEDS TO CHANGE: To make sure we have adequate facilities for sports and leisure to encourage a healthy lifestyle.

L

arge-bellied men aged 50–74 are of particular interest to Brighton resident Dr Carolyn Allan, and she is looking for 1500 of them. Allan is co-heading the Victorian arm of a $4.8 million Australia-

wide study, the first of its kind in the world, to determine whether treating overweight older men with testosterone supplements and a weight-loss program will save them from type 2 diabetes.

The two-year study is called T4DM (Testosterone for Diabetes Mellitus). Men who sign up will have free access to the online weight-loss program run by Weight Watchers. “We know that men as they

get older have a subtle drop in their testosterone levels, unlike women who have a sudden drop in oestrogen at menopause,’’ says Allan. “We have shown in our work at Prince Henry’s and in international studies that if you identify men with low testosterone and increase the levels to normal, that can help reduce body fat. “We will look at the effects of testosterone on body fat, ask does it have a direct effect on their insulin?’ and will it help motivate them to increase their sense of well-being and improve their lifestyle.’’ Allan’s interest in men’s health began while she was working in reproductive endocrinology in London in the 1990s. She was focusing on menopause and female reproduction when she realised there was little work being done on male hormones and male ageing. On her return, she joined Prince Henry’s Institute at Monash Medical Centre because of its expertise in hormone research, and in 2000 started looking at the effects of ageing and at testosterone and body composition. Besides research, Allan is also

a consulting endocrinologist at Monash Medical Centre and Cabrini Hospital, and a senior lecturer at Monash University. She also works with a federal government initiative called Andrology Australia, which educates health professionals in male reproductive health. Allan says her study of ageing is for health reasons and Australia’s “increasingly ageing population” rather than vanity or performance enhancement in sport. What is her view on peptides, which have made headlines recently? “We don’t know what the negative impact is, we don’t know what the impact on the risk of cancer may be,’’ Allan says. “My concern about a lot of antiageing therapies is we don’t truly understand the long-term benefits and the long-term risks. “The use of performanceenhancing drugs in sport is for a super physiological effect. “What we are doing is bringing someone back to a normal range.’’ To volunteer for the study, visit t4dm.org.au.

Swim and survive Drowning deaths of children have risen in the past year, and swimming advocates are urging parents to turn the tide. By LAURA BANKS SCOTT MCNAUGHTON

Mitchell, 7, and Emily, 9, learning vital water skills at Klim Swim at the Bayside Leisure Centre

I

t was a moment that could have torn Karli Wright’s life apart; a split-second lapse that so easily might have ended in the tragic drowning of her three-year-old daughter. “Janelle was three and I was a bit blase. As a first-time mum I thought there would be plenty of time to teach her to swim,” says the Albert Park mother of two.“It’s the old story – we went to a friend’s house for a barbecue and there was a pool.The gate was open and Janelle just trundled her way into the water.” Wright heard the splash and pulled the toddler from the pool immediately. “We were so lucky.The next week I enrolled Janelle in swimming lessons and I tell every mum I meet now to do the same,”

Wright says.“You just can’t take the risk – your child’s life is not a risk you take.” According to the latest Victorian Drowning Report, released by Life Saving Victoria, 37 people drowned in Victoria in 2011-12, three more than in the previous year. The data also revealed a 17 per cent increase in hospitalisations of children aged five to 14 years for non-fatal drowning since 2001. Although there were no deaths by drowning in Bayside and Port Phillip during the past 12 months – and fatalities have declined in the area over the past decade – parents are being warned to remain alert and take precautions to protect their children. Life Saving Victoria’s manager of research and injury prevention, Dr Bernadette Matthews, says

swimmers should never enter the water alone and parents should never take their eyes off their children around water. “Actively supervise them, not just the occasional glance. Children under five should always be within arm’s reach,” says Matthews.“Many drowning deaths are preventable, so we must continue to be vigilant.” Matthews says pools should always have safety barriers and pool owners should check them regularly for damage. Robert Caulfield, president of Kidsafe Victoria, says it’s shocking for many parents to learn that children can drown so quickly and silently. “Twenty seconds is all it takes for a toddler to drown,” he says. Caulfield says it’s essential to appoint a designated adult to

supervise children around water, especially at parties and gatherings where people can become easily distracted. “Never, ever take your eyes off your children in the water.” Clair McGarrigle, manager of Sandringham-based swim school Klim Swim, says now that swimming lessons in schools are no longer compulsory, the onus is on parents to ensure their children can swim. “About 10 years ago, swimming lessons were compulsory in schools,” says McGarrigle.“That is no longer the case so parents need to be more vigilant with their children around the water.’’ The focus of swimming lessons at the Bayside-based centre has changed as well, the manager says. “We teach kids water safety and

survival skills, we talk about safety outside the swimming pool – what to do at the beach, on a boat, in a river and at home swimming pools. We need to make children aware that they are to swim between the flags at the beach and to be aware of the dangers of swimming pools at homes.” McGarrigle recommends that children start water familiarisation as young as six months.“You’re more training the parents – water familiarisation and socialisation are great for the child, but you’re also teaching the parent how to handle their children so they’re both comfortable in the water,” she says. “We’ve had families that have certainly had scares, luckily none that have had a tragedy ... It’s just so important that parents ensure their kids know how to swim.”

JANE HUTCHINSON channels her inner Anna Wintour when she visits a very different kind of bar on Church Street BLOW DRY BAR

The verdict

105 Church Street, Brighton Details: visit blowdrybar.com.au or call 9593 2423

I dropped by the Blow Dry Bar at 8am on my way to work, ready to be transformed into a flawless vision of professionalism. Ushered straight to one of three wash basins at the rear of the industrial chic shopfront, I relaxed while my hair and scalp were expertly washed and massaged. Stylist Andy Tuffee (pictured) whisked me to a blow dry station where he set to work stretching and smoothing my hair into submission with his hand-held drier and an arsenal of brushes. A quick spritz of hair spray and 20 minutes later I was looking in the mirror at a Vogue-worthy sweep of hair with not a strand out of place. By 8:30 am, as promised, I was strutting down Church Street, feeling like I could eat interns for breakfast. It’s amazing what a decent ‘do can do for your confidence.

Y

ears ago I read that American Vogue’s formidable editor, Anna Wintour, has her famously luxuriant bob professionally blow dried every morning before work.To me having your hair coiffed before facing the world each day has always seemed like the ultimate in sophistication. So when I heard about the new Blow Dry Bar in Church Street, promising a professional blow dry in 30 minutes for $40, I couldn’t wait to try it out. In fact the Blow Dry Bar, one of 23 throughout Australia, is more or less a regular hair salon, offering all the usual cut and colour services too. But their point of difference is their express blow dry service which promises to ‘‘get you from work to gorgeous in just half an hour’’. 12 BAYSIDE REVIEW LOCAL

FILM CONTEST

A

win two years in a row in the Jump Cut competition has given 18-year-old Bayside filmmaker Blake Borcich’s career a flying start. Since his seven-minute film The Locket won in the secondary section in the Bayside Film Festival’s Jump Cut competition in 2011, Borcich has won more than 30 awards. Last year his black-andwhite thriller, Boston Tommy, won Jump Cut and the St Kilda Film Festival hailed his musical comedy, The Trouble with Alexander, as the best short film by a youth. Bond University, where Borcich’s films have twice won awards, has offered him a scholarship. So has Sydney Film School. “I am not taking either of them ... the level of the courses was too basic for me,’’ says Borcich, a full-time independent director and producer of LaRoda Films, which he set up in 2010. Instead, he has entered his nine-minute film Resistance in the Jump Cut festival this year, and is creating commercials to make his mark in the industry. He is also preparing to take on the role of second unit director in a $5 million feature film to be shot in Victoria next year, but he can’t say much about it until he gets the green light. Borcich, who graduated from Xavier College last year as one of

JUMP CUT

its top students, has more than 20 films to his name,“but my last six short films are the ones I consider professional’’. The Locket is his most successful film. The dialogue-free story about a lonely old man who scours the beach with a metal detector, finds a locket, and goes on a journey to return it to its owner, has won 12 awards. Xavier College was so impressed by Borcich’s work that it created

VOX POPCORN

an award category just for him and gave him $500 for Resistance. Set in France in the 1940s, it tells the story of a 16-year-old French girl and her grandmother hiding in an underground cellar

TOMMY GUN: Blake Borcich’s Boston Tommy won at Jump Cut in 2012

during the World War II German invasion. Borcich, an only child, can thank his mother, a kindergarten teacher, and his father, who has a metalpolishing factory, for igniting his passion for film. ‘‘I was introduced to the movie image in 2004 through a short play animation course at ACMI,’’ he says.

‘‘My mum enrolled me into that with a friend for fun – but that sparked my interest.’’ Jump Cut is still special to Borcich. “It gave me recognition of my work, and told me I was doing the right thing,” he says. HARBANT GILL hgill@mmpgroup.com.au

Lives: St Kilda. Worth the price of admission? No, it was a conceptually tremendous story, but ruined by American schmaltz. I could kind of sit there, and I could tell you exactly what was going to happen. Out of 10: 5½. Just a pass. Favourite film: One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest.

Lives: Elwood. Worth the price of admission? Definitely, I thought it was an amazing film; really great performances and a good script. Out of 10: 8. Favourite film: Silence of the Lambs.

Lives: Elwood. Worth the price of admission? Definitely. Really liked it. I thought the characters at first seemed to overpower the story, but then it all kind of linked together. Some really great performances. Out of 10: 8. Favourite film: Too many to name. Sorry.

DECENT EXPOSURE

S

herry, tea, biscuits, wine and a liberal dose of revenge were on the menu last Thursday at Brighton Town Hall, where the indefatigable Brighton Theatre Company premiered Joanna Murray-Smith’s The Female of the Species, a witty-but-wise look at a feminist author oblivious to the wreckage her blinkered ideology triggers.

CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT Theatre buddies Maureen Taylor and Elizabeth Hunt. Eleanor Bally plays Molly, the deranged former student of slightly less deranged feminist author Margot, played by Christine Andrew. But then, when you write a novel as contentious as Margot’s The Cerebral Vagina, emotions get stirred.

Cory Glindon and Ryan Jones are friends of Brighton Theatre Company actor Tania Knight. Horst Gawantka says he has seen practically every Brighton Theatre Company play during the past eight years. I found myself chuckling over the idea of New Zealanders pronouncing the surname of Judy Fiket (right). She’s pictured with Julie Johnston. How often do you meet two Wilmas? Pictured staring into the mirror are Wilma Warren (left) and Wilma Bain.

JUST MARRIED JACQUI and DANIEL PHIVOPOULOS

H

ighett couple Jacqui and Daniel Phivopoulos met in their teens but it wasn’t until a mutual friend invited them both to dinner a couple of years ago that they started spending more time together. After a romantic dinner at Sandringham Yacht Club, Daniel took Jacqui outside to watch the sunset from the balcony and proposed. The stunning panoramic view of the water and the excellent food impressed the couple so much they decided to return to the club to celebrate their wedding on November 3 last year. Close friends and family joined the newlyweds for a night of fun on the foreshore of Port Phillip Bay before the couple flew to Fiji for their honeymoon. Jacqui wore a made-to-measure dress designed by Vincenzo Pintaudi Couture and made with silks and lace from Tylers Fabrics. Van Wyk Flowers provided all floral arrangements for the big day, from the bride’s bouquet to the corsages and centrepieces. Krysten Loannedes at Cakes Amour made “the best tasting wedding cake you will ever have” according to Jacqui. Jonathan at Dreamlife Photos & Video captured the day as it unfolded for the couple.

SUPPLIED

Robbo goes from a Demon to a Gryphon BY DANIEL PAPROTH dpaproth@mmpgroup.com.au MONASH Gryphons are confident of a bumper season in division two of the VAFA after signing former Melbourne spearhead Russell Robertson. The big-marking forward kicked 428 goals for the Demons over 13 seasons and will be joining the Gryphons for at least half a dozen matches this season. Gryphons assistant coach, friend and business partner Phil Warren had been chasing Robertson to joint he Caulfield-based club since he left the AFL in 2009. ‘‘He’d been saying for a couple of years ‘why don’t you come and play with Monash’,’’ Robertson says. ‘‘You don’t want to go from AFL and go back a few levels. There’s always that question of how am I going to handle it. ‘‘But the timing is probably right now. I’m 35, I haven’t really got the toe or the ability I used to have so

I’m going to come down for a couple of kicks and enjoy some park footy.’’ Robertson will also play for Burnie Dockers in the Tasmanian State League and says he’s enjoying the freedom of less responsibility after two years as playing coach of St Joseph’s in the Geelong Football League. ‘‘I’ve freed myself up this year and I’m really enjoying it,’’ he says. ‘‘You get to know some different people in the Ammos. ‘‘It’s a different perspective for me, conversations about different topics. It’s great.’’ Robertson is a busy man outside of football. He is developing a community football iPhone app with Warren, does special comments for radio station K-Rock, plays guitar in a number of corporate bands – one with Kate Ceberano’s brother, Phil – and does some work with the Dees. He says the sanctions handed down to the Demons last week over

the 2009 tanking allegations are the start of a healing process. ‘‘We went through a bad time in 2009 . . . transitional situations from a team and administration aspect and Jimmy [Stynes] had his problems with cancer,’’ he says. ‘‘It’s a good result not to have any draft sanctions although the [$500,000 fine] will set us back so we’re going to need a lot of people to help us out. ‘‘But we want to put it behind us, get it paid off and get the team back up the top of the ladder and create some excitement about the club.’’ As for the Gryphons, Warren says signing Robertson is a coup. ‘‘If he can kick 10 goals a game for us we’ll be right,’’ he says. ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ●

Finals loom for Elsternwick ELSTERNWICK all but assured itself of a Sub-District finals spot with a 60-run win over Yarraville on Saturday. A Harry Nurse century, Anton Scholtz’s half-century and handy additions from Rohan O’Neill and Callum O’Neill the previous weekend meant Elsternwick could set its opponents a difficult target of 275 for victory after one of its best batting performances of the season. The second day at Elsternwick Park was all about patience for the home side as all Yarraville’s toporder batsmen made starts. Matthew Harrison (39), Adam Yates (38), Brad Shaw (32) and Daniel Saville (30) all looked good but none was able to go on with it. And once Elsternwick got the last of those key wickets, Yates at 5/169, they took four in quick succession to reduce Yarraville to 9/183. The final pair, Patrick Prestidge (18) and Nick Parish (13), put on 29 to delay the inevitable but it was Elsternwick’s day. Callum O’Neill took 4-50, Adam Fraine 3-48 and Dallas Jones 2-56. CAULFIELD was back to its best form on Saturday, making 3/294 to hammer a hapless Roxburgh Park/ Broadmeadows. Chasing 172, Caulfield lost just one wicket, Peter Cross for 20, before they passed the target.

ARI HATZIS

BY DANIEL PAPROTH

■ SOUTH STARTS CHASE In the same division, South Caulfield is 0/21 chasing Old Mentonians’ 210. South Caulfield used seven bowlers and all snared at least one wicket, with Shane Jeffree’s 2-18 the best. Masmulla Thillana and Ben Howell (both 8) are at the crease for South Caulfield. ■ OPENERS GO CHEAPLY Beaumaris is 2/56 chasing McKinnon’s 157 in the VTCA. McKinnon snared both Beaumaris openers cheaply but Chris Salmon is 30 not out. ■ BACON SIZZLES Brighton District already has the points against Chelsea. George Bacon snared four wickets as Chelsea was bowled out for 104. Brighton made 5/141 in reply.

BENDING HIS BACK: Elsternwick paceman Andrew McGorian bowls to Yarraville skipper Alex Hewet From there, wicketkeeper and star batsman Ricky Damiano and opener Ben Shipperd absolutely dominated. Damiano was the second wicket to fall, out for 133 after he and Shipperd had put on 195 for the second wicket. Heartbreakingly, Shipperd fell three short of a deserving century.

Skipper Rob Bartlett was 30 not out. MOORABBIN’S match with Williamston ended in a remarkable tie after it had been reduced to a onedayer because of unsuitable conditions on day one, Moorabbin made 8/190 and then watched on as Williamstown was bowled out for 190 from its 45 overs.

ORMOND is in danger of dropping out of finals contention after a loss to Altona. Chasing Ormond’s 223 Altona passed the total with six wickets down, with half centuries to Aaron Maynard and Adam Brown. A massive total by flag favourites Melton was too much for Brighton, bowled out for 106 chasing 8/295. Matt Crawley made 40.

Saints slip to outright loss Wilson takes Open title A BIG second-innings total couldn’t save St Kilda from an outright loss to Geelong in Premier Cricket. The Saints are still in the top four but in danger of falling out with one round left before finals, as thee teams are within six points. After being bowled out for 50 the previous week and then watching the home side declare at 9/203, St Kilda resumed on day two in Geelong on 3/35 in the second innings. When they slumped to 6/98, the Cats could smell victory. But then Rob Quiney (47) and James Muirhead (39) put on 58 for the seventh wicket before Quiney fell.

■ BENTLEIGH IN TROUBLE Bentleigh is struggling at 3/34 chasing Airport West St Christopher’s 9/203 in the Senior Division of the VTCA. Bentleigh was 3/8 before Jeff Keyt (18no) and Chris Street (10no) steadied things.

When Muirhead went soon after, bowlers Daniel Mueller (87) and Lachlan Graf (53) made an unbroken 137-run stand that took the Saints to 8/315 before skipper Graeme Rummans declared. This left St Kilda 162 ahead, but the Cats passed that with five wickets down in just 20 overs. MELBOURNE fell just short of Prahran’s total of 345, the top-of-thetable match ending in a draw. Prahran resumed at 7/319 and declared at 9/345. Melbourne made 5/328 in reply, with Brenton McDonald (90 not out), Mat Begbie (56) and Matt Brown (52) all getting halfcenturies.

AARON Wilson capped off an incredible week for Brighton Bowling Club at the Australian Open when he won a tight match against West Australian Matthew Ayres to take the singles title. The 21-year-old is now $18,000 richer after his 12-3, 8-10, 4-1 win over his 17-year-old opponent at Darebin City Bowling Club. Wilson reached the final of the 128-man event by knocking out fifth seed Jeremy Henry in the semi-final. The win for Wilson, the number 11 seed, capped off a sensational week for Brighton at the open after disability bowler Wendy Odgers also won gold by hammering Caro-

lyn Nelson 11-1, 7-2 in the final. Lee Schraner and Gayle Edwards fell agonisingly short of making the mixed pairs final, going down 13-5, 8-12, 2-3 in a tight three-set contest against Amanda Haevecker and Rohan Wilson, while Mary-Anne Spizer and C. Grimes won the over-60 women’s pairs. But Schraner, who dominated the Victorian Open in November, was surprisingly knocked out of the singles, losing 15-1, 4-10, 4-1 to Sean Ingham. Schraner, Wilson and Wilson’s brother, Matt, lost in a tiebreak in the semi-finals of the triples, going down 4-11, 10-9, 1-2.
